Educators Say SOL Requires Too Many Tests
Many Virginia educators and parents are unhappy with the number of tests given in schools as part of the state mandated Standards of Learning program. The Washington County, VA School Board has taken steps to end, or at least reevaluate the initiative by asking the Virginia General Assembly to look into the public school assessments. Educators believe with all the tests students have to take, teachers are not able to effectively teach and that they hinder studentsí learning abilities. The school board voted at a meeting on Monday to pass the resolution. It will now go to a local representative who will choose whether or not to carry the measure when the state legislature convenes in January.
